Earlier, a controversy has broken out in Madhya Pradesh over the delay in EVMs reaching the strong rooms in Sagar on Friday, a full 48 hours after voting ended in the state elections on Wednesday.
"In Madhya Pradesh home minister's area, EVMs were deposited using a bus without a registration plate, 48 hours after polling. Is this a conspiracy by the government to ensure a BJP win?" the Madhya Pradesh Congress tweeted.
